#ldsconf October 2014

Loved this Facebook update from a Mormon woman about General Conference weekend of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. (Shared with permission.)

In [a few hours], I will be hearing the most comforting, true, hopeful, inspiring, and meaningful messages I hear all year. I’ve seen extraordinary TED talks and heard beautiful speeches from influential people before but nothing reaches me at my very center like this meeting. The LDS General Conference live broadcast will be aired from Salt Lake City all over the world. The purpose? To speak to members and nonmembers alike and share with them messages of hope, to give them faith and strength to keep going, to teach them how to be the best people they can be, and to testify of the divinity of Jesus Christ. Isn’t being more kind, more helpful, more aware of others, more loving toward humanity, and more influential people for good something we all want? Find a Mormon friend and let them tell you where and how and when you can hear these types of messages and encouragement. You’ll get whatever it is your heart is needing right now and you won’t regret it. That’s a promise.
